  • Really interesting and näkemisenarvoinen. Presents the history of the gold digging down in different countries.

  • Very curious to learn the technique of panning for gold. The coaches who teach have many skills and are very accessible.

  • The gold village actually consists of three different areas: the Museum, the gold laundry and restaurant. The Museum is great and absolutely worth seeing. However you should cope already relatively well with English - also if to find some explanations on German in the area "Switzerland". Even pan for gold and find even something fun correctly, especially if one has his own coach because of the small crowd, who explained everything well and came to help. The restaurant is simple and practical, no highlight the food, but ok, the operation was moderately and unfortunately not attentive. Definitely a great trip, absolutely recommended!

  • The museum tells about gold panning in Lapland and the mining for gold around the world. It is most interesting to try your luck with the sand yourself. Under professional supervision every one in our party successfully retrieved gold specks to take home as souvenirs!
  • Interesting material and inspiring guides. Good food at the restaurant well worth a visit.
  • Lovely experience... It's not easy extract gold from river.... It was an hard work older time but now.... it's the same too ;D
  • very nice place to reast especially in winter, you can find there some trials for hikeing with children
  • Excellent, very informative and everyone was very helpful, thank you
